Bug Description

Many digital cmeras, especially Ricoh and recent Panasonic ansd Olympus, show levels on their screen to make it easier to hold the camera level, which is very important for landscape and architecture shots.

Olympus and Ricoh have one horizontal level at the bottom to make horizontal lines in the picture beine level and one vertical level on the right side of the screen to make the optical axis level and so vertical lines being vertical, especially with a wide angle lens. Panasonic cameras have something like an artificial horizon in the middle of the picture.

This would also be a great feature for Ubuntu's camera app, to not come home with the Leaning Tower of Paris.

The code for this already exists in the "Level" app in the store.
